WOUNDED WARRIORS—which makes its debut this Saturday, November 10 over Veterans Day weekend at the GI Film Festival Hollywood—is a short film documenting Jonathan Davis, lead singer of Grammy Award-winning band KORN, returning to Ramstein Air Base in Germany August 11, 2012 to visit with members of armed forces stationed there as well as those in transit from Iraq and Afghanistan. The film is also up for an Audience Choice Award. The screening is open to the public and will take place at the Los Angeles Film School Main Theatre at 10:00 a.m. It will be followed by a Q&A in which Jonathan will participate. Tickets for the screening and Q&A are available now here.

Filmmaker Sébastien Paquet provides us with a visual tour as Jonathan Davis narrates his personal experience at Ramstein and passion for supporting the troops. WOUNDED WARRIORS starts off with Davis getting a tour of a C130J Hercules Aircraft from Airmen of the 37th Airlift Squadron and an explosives demonstration from the 886th Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight. Next, he visits Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) where he meets with soldiers as well as a United States Embassy representative injured in Iraq and Afghanistan to thank them for the sacrifices they have given.

Produced by MSgt Jocelin Borisow, Installation Emergency Manager at Ramstein AB, for Suspended Motion ProductionsWOUNDED WARRIORS captures a glimpse of Davis’ unique understanding of what emotional challenges wounded warriors go through which drives his desire to get involved and do more for the brave men and women that have answered our nation’s call.

    Eva this isn't "adorable". This is about combat veterans that have given so much to protect the US and our interests. It's FAR from "adorable".
